    Christmas tree recycling locations open in northern Nevada
    LAS VEGAS, NV – Since 2001, more than 350,000 trees have been recycled throughout Nevada thanks to the help of several Christmas tree recycling programs, thousands of volunteers and many community sponsors. These programs were established to provide Nevada communities with an easy alternative to landfilling and to prevent illegal dumping of Christmas trees in public open spaces. When chipped into mulch, cut trees become valuable organic material used in landscaping projects that help conserve soil moisture, keep plants healthy and control weeds.
    Christmas tree recycling will be from December 26 to January 7.
    The drop off locations are Rancho San Rafael Park, Bartley Ranch Park, Shadow Mountain Sports Complex and the following Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District Stations:
    • Stations 16: East Washoe Valley 240 East Lake Blvd., Washoe Valley
    • Station 17: Spanish Springs 500 Rockwell Blvd., Spanish Springs
    • Station 223: Lemmon Valley: 130 Nectar St.
    Incline Village:
    Curbside collection week is January 8-12. Clean trees will be collected for recycling on service day at no charge during this week. Trees must be cut to 3 ft. lengths.
    Trees may also be dropped off at Preston Field: Dec. 22- Jan. 29.
